Best meal of our trip. Loved the food and the service. I had the spinach salad which had a piece of fried feta which was fabulous along with the chicken dinner with vegetable hash. I ate it all!

Both were excellent with the day's special sides of roasted Brussel sprouts with mushrooms etc. perfectly prepared. The Fried cheese grit cakes... More

Been hearing great things about this place for years but never in Crestview at dinner time. Well, luck had us driving thru crestview at dinner time and stopped by. All good. Great decor. Great variety on menu. Grouper was awsome. Chocolate cake delicious. Understand why people rave about this spot.

Thank Guy W
